  • HalloWhat? 2 months ago I guess visiting the birthplace of "Dracula" in Transylvania makes up for missing a few Halloween parties!Living abroad requires sacrifices - there’s no doubt about it.  Some are easier, and others are more difficult.  But, there’s one particular day that bothers me:  Halloween. Let’s face...
  • Batman Is Dutch? 2 months ago Amsterdam, and the Dutch in general, are famous for their bikes.  The two wheeled monsters are everywhere.  You know those iconic pictures of bikes locked to every railing and canal bridge?  Those aren’t exciting – they’re just Amsterdam. I’m going to say it (probably not for the last...
  • Bikes. Classic Video Games. Amsterdam. 3 months ago It would be tough to say what Amsterdam is most famous for, but I’m sure bicycles make it into the top ten.  Creating a strong cycling infrastructure is something that’s admired around the developed world as a civilized, responsible, and environmentally friendly way to transport citizens from...
  • Art On The Street - Amsterdam 3 months ago  This is an interesting mix of characters! After a summer busy with writing an MBA thesis, and the other stress that follows finishing grad school, I find myself in Amsterdam.  So, you should prepare for some interesting stories and lots of pictures. The ironic part is that even though I’m in...

The reason I’m thinking about time flying by is that it just...

Th blog is a must-read, and whenever a new post goes up, I'm pretty sure I'm always one of the first to read it. If I weren't already living in Hungary, I definitely would've moved it to the top of my list to live/visit because of Alex's blog!

I've been following Alex's blog for years now, and it's been a fantastic way to see Europe and Hungary through his eyes. He's taking a bit of the USA with him, and bringing us back a lot of foreign culture in exchange. Alex Will Travel? More like Alex Will Win!

I've traveled with Alex and truly enjoy his sense of adventure and knack for story telling. His laid-back personality makes for good travels and great retellings. It's been two years since we traveled together yet I still read his posts and travel vicariously through his continued adventures. You're always guaranteed a good read on AlexWillTravel!

Reading Alex's travel blog never ceases to amuse me. He writes with a hilarious tone and I often find myself in fits of laughter from reading his words. Sometimes his blog makes me want to sell all my things and move to Hungary immediately. Thanks for sharing your stories!

Well, I had been an expat in Germany, in the Netherlands and for 8 years in the United States. So, besides knowing why and what to appreciate in an expats life, it is also fascinating to see how somebody lives as an expat here in Hungary. It is really entertaining and also useful to see how to get over the barriers that one faces when being far from home. Why not call Hungary your second home, Alex?

Alex has a great eye, not only for photography, but for understanding what's happening around him. What makes his blog a delight to read is his ability to translate his perception to the page. Thank you for educating us about Hungary!

Extremely entertaining stories about living and traveling in Hungary that stimulate your imagination. Makes me want to visit every place that Alex writes about. And the photos are a perfect match for the writing, both are great.

Alex captures his experiences in a positive, informative way while always adding a twist of humor that keeps me coming back to read each post. Before we moved to Hungary we did tons of research, and Alex's blog was one of the most helpful resources we found.

I really like reading this blog, it's nice to see a foreign guy's opinion about the place I live! Sometimes I realize that he probably knows more about Budapest and some other places in Hungary than me. I would expect to read about his experiences from the nightlife, it would probably be useful for some other young foreigners as well. It's really nice to see that he makes soo much effort to try to be funny! :)
